A photographer discovers a plot to assassinate one of her subjects, the wealthiest black man in America, and faces a nerve-wracking race against time to save his life.
Pam Grier – who starred so well in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown (1997) – is here seen in an early role as a black “superwoman”.
She plays fearless magazine photographer Friday Foster (a character taken from a comic strip) who blunders into a St Valentine’s Day-style massacre involving a black millionaire.
Grier is joined by a terrific black cast: Yaphet Kotto (cop), Godfrey Cambridge (crook), Eartha Kitt (fashion designer), Scatman Crothers (minister).
The villainous mastermind (Jim Backus) is white, though.
